"Best Linux is a product of SOT Finnish Software Engineering Ltd. Originally, Best Linux was a project started by SOT to bring Linux to Finland, increase its popularity in Finland, and translate it into Finnish. SOT based the project on the popular Red Hat 6.2 distribution. The result? They ended up with the most popular distribution of Linux in Finland, home of Linus Torvalds - developer and creator of the Linux kernel. A large part of that popularity was due to their creation of a localized version of Linux, one that was based on an already popular distribution."

"Since that time, Best Linux has moved to international circles by providing a distribution that supports several languages: Finnish, English, Russian, Swedish, Spanish, German, French and Estonian. While the addition of these languages to Linux is important, one must ask, what else has Best Linux done to differentiate itself from other distributions, specifically Red Hat?"
